Hi all, My 1 month old SSD (PNY 128GB Sata 2) failed last week. I had only used it for 2-3 weeks and most of the data was backed up, so the data loss was minimal. However, I still lost some important word documents which were not backed up. Firstly, lets look at why the disk failed, and what messages I am getting. I was carrying my laptop with me to the loft, and when I put it down on the deck, I believe I may have done it harshly . I tried to turn the laptop a few times afterwards, but I kept getting messages suggested I/O failure and errors with the HDD. Also, the ribbon connecting my HDD to the Sony laptop Motherboard is quite flimsy, so it was half pulled out when I checked it afterwards. I believe that the HDD ribbon came out of the disk when I moved it upstairs, and this may have caused an error while the HDD was being read, and perhaps the partition table got corrupted in the process. When I plug the disk in Win 7, the Disk Mgmt believes the disk is Uninitialised, and the disk space is Unallocated. I have not since tried to write or alter anything on the disk until a recovery attempt is made. Next looking at data recovery options, I tried a number of softwares including demo of a highly "regarded" software Kroll OnTrack, but even after scanning my disk overnight, it could not find anything. I also rang OnTrack, but their quote is quite high (£500+ for the cheapest service). Is there something that could be done to recover the data cheaply (or freely) ? Please help!
